Syrian pianist Malek Jandali performs "Echoes from Ugarit: The Oldest Music in the World." Mr. Jandali has based his composition on the oldest music notation in the world, dating back to 3,400 B.C., discovered in the ancient city of Ugarit on the Mediterranean coast of Syria. He recorded this first arrangement for piano and orchestra with the Russian Philharmonic Orchestra in Moscow. The project is an attempt to present the rich musical heritage of the Levant region. It has been performed with several leading symphony orchestras around the world and has been received with critical acclaim in Europe, North America, and the Middle East.
